Ich Bin VIELE – The Little Mermaid

via Buzzfeed

Lately the importance of Disney princesses in gender development was questioned quite a lot. Tumblrs with bearded princesess like Conchita Wurst made quite the fuzz on the internet. But beside that it seems clear like Cinderella’s crystal shoe to me and my peers that looking for the perfect fairy tale prince is not a strategy for happy relationship and self-fullfilment at all. So why not change the fairy tales to make them more up-to-date? What if the little mermaid is not a little fishy lady but the Mean Bitch from the Sea?

In a mixture of performance, pop-concert and object theater Koikate examines images of fish, women and the scaly abyss of societal gender, body and identity models at Sophiensaele. What expectations have established themselves in our minds, and which ones have registered themselves in our bodies? And just how sexy can a fish tail be when something crucial is missing down there? We are giving away 2×2 tickets for this performance concert on Saturday. How to win and more infos after the jump.

To win one of the two pairs of tickets please leave a comment below with the name of your favourite fairy tale and a valid email address until Thursday midnight. Good luck!

    My favorite Disney story is The Little Mermaid because i like the soundtrack and i played before going out when i party, plus i think Under the sea is an anticapitalistic song against labor exploitation.

    Dude who stole my car, that’s a fairytale, right?

  3. Chris Scherer Says:

    My favourite fairy tale is “The Sleeping beauty”: can you imagine 100 years of dreams? Life must have been pretty boring after that!
